I had ankle ligament reconstruction surgery and a cyst removed on Jan 5th, 2017. I was in a soft cast for 11 days and then had stitches removed and was put in a boot. I was told I could start weight bearing with crutches at 11 days! I was in too much pain and waited another week before I started. I am now at 7 weeks post op and still on crutches! When I try to walk with one crutch my ankle swells up soooo bad. My surgeon said it will be okay and that at 8 weeks I need to start physical therapy.
I'm just curious about anyone else who had the same surgery and how long it took til you didn't need crutches anymore? I'm getting frustrated with my recovery and not being able to walk without crutches and my pain and swelling.
Thanks in advance!
